Last year, our Bureau of Epidemiology and Disease Control launched its first mobile app for infectious diseases, the AZ infectious Disease Resource (IDAZ). We’re thrilled to announce that our mobile app team has partnered up with the Office of Injury Prevention to develop the second public health focused app, Healthy Kids AZ!
Healthy Kids AZ is a mobile app that was built specifically for Arizona’s school nurses and child care staff who take care of our pediatric population on a daily basis. The app provides access to an up-to-date resource in the palm of their hands. Healthy Kids AZ includes access to electronic versions of the beloved infectious disease and injury prevention flipcharts, AZ specific vaccine information, infection control guidance, and much more.
The app was officially launched at the 2017 Arizona Infectious Disease Exercise and Training and is now available for FREE download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Healthy Kids AZ is another way for ADHS to demonstrate leadership when it comes innovative resources for our partners and our community. Congratulations to our mobile app team on their second successful app launch!
